prevent identity theft and in and the hiring of future unauthorized workers and lastly, we established an improved process for admitting future workers to serve our nation's workforce needs while simultaneously protecting all workers. other bipartisan groups of senators have stood in the same spot before, trumpeting similar proposals but we believe this will be the year congress finally gets it done. the politics on this issue have been turned upside down. for the first time ever, there is more political risk and opposing immigration reform than in supporting it. we believe we have a window of opportunity to act, but we will only succeed if the effort is bipartisan. by their presence today, my republican colleagues are making a significant statement about the need to fix our broken immigration system. we democrats are equally serious. we do not want immigration as a wedge issue. much rather, we want a bipartisan bill that solves the problems and becomes law. we recognize that in order to pass bipartisan legislation none of us can get everything we want. that is why our fram

earlier to get him the help that they need. lastly, in addition to the first, i personally support the creation of the coalition against american violence and crime which would examine violent crime in the court recommendations on what our government can do on a local and state and national level to reduce domestic terrorism and violence crimes, such as those that we witnessed in newtown, aurora, colorado, tucson, arizona, and others. as mayor of philadelphia, i also announce something that i referred to as the sandy hook principles. these principles are a call to action for corporations to keep basic core values of american citizens in promoting the health and safety and well-being of our community. the objective of these principles is the influence of the behavior of gun manufacturers and establishing a baseline standard for responsible conduct of their businesses. i have shared these principles with many other mayors from around the country and we expect we will be reviewing and discussing them in the days ahead. let me be very clear, however. strengthening our gun laws does not

. >> and lastly, will the federal establishment be as sensitive to the economic issues as the states are? >> yeah, no, that's an important set of questions. i don't talk about the federal system as much because they are on the opposite trajectory. so the federal system, as was just mentioned, is actually expanding. the bureau of prisons' budget actually expanded this past, this past year. it is going kind of countercounter to the that the states are going in. and the aclu recently sponsored a couple of hearings in congress where state leaders from states that actually have enacted significant reform presented the story of what had happened in their states and trying to kind of poet sate reform in the federal -- motivate reform in the federal system. the reality is that the economic pressures facing the states and state governments don't exist in the same way as they do with the federal government. so the federal government isn't feeling that same pinch. they -- state governments have to balance their budget. the federal government doesn't. and so there are fewer pressures, um, on the fed

." and he goes on to discuss it in various views. and he says, lastly, "it would fafacilitate and foster the painful practice of practices which has shown itself only be in states where a majority, a practice subversive of all the order and principles of regular government, a practice which leads more directly to public convulsions and the ruin of popular governments than any other which has yet been displayed among us." and he also made point that you would end up with equitable sacrifices to the general wheel or general good. so as we turn to our conversations in our respective caucuses and to the dialogue here on the floor of the senate, i ask my colleagues to search your hearts about our responsibility to the citizens of the united states of america to address the big issues facing america, which means that we don't paralyze this body in secret. if you have points to make then do them, as was done during periods of great debates on the floor of the senate, make them on the floor of the senate, engage in that debate. and when no more is to be said, when all hundred senators say, we ha

are established and lastly, the physical layout has to be revisited. there has to the maximum number of precincts that the location can only hold and to add on with that, you have to be prepared to increase the size of the staff and machines and processes and being able to scale up for the larger locations you might have so i think that is important and one of the areas we need to address, one size doesn't fit all. we don't look at one system for every location. we need to make sure we look at the size of the location as well as management of the precinctss within the location. thank you. >> one thing i would like you to consider in the closing statement is advice that you would give to other jurisdictions that find themselves in a battleground state. earlier today we heard there were ten states that were identified as meeting that criteria. for some like ohio, pennsylvania, cloud ground in many ways that there were some state foot for the first time found themselves under the scrutiny you referred to particularly the third party interest group engagement. maybe one of the things you
